with "the boston globe." i just wasn't very am what you said about some of the numbers, responsive to the obama representative, talking to high you get 4% of gdp. you said if you have an account is 4.2% so if by your logic are saying romney will then reduce defense spending to 4%? if given an apples to apples comparison so everyone can understand. >> sure. here's the point. the overseas contingency operations account is essentially driven by afghanistan and iraq but iraq is going. and afghanistan is being drawn down. and mr. romney has said as long as the commanders on the ground our code for with the 2014 deadline and we can discuss the differences there've because it's not just a minor new ones, then he's prepared to follow their advice. in which case that account, because driven by operations comes down. the point though is that you will still be taking some of that money, there are billions of dollars in that account that really have a long-term implication and they are not purely driven by the afghanistan operation. so you would move that to the basement and yes, you would in

in boston they reached their agreement on their teachers' union contract, and they have been fighting over for the past two years, and their contract that they just agreed to in boston is very similar to what is on the table in chicago. but boston has a no-strike clause. and even though they've been fighting over it for two years, they got a mediator from washington, d.c. to come in and work with these folks, work with both sides. they settled this thing. at the end of the day, no kids lost time, you know, out of the classroom. we're at the point now where -- and i believe -- that we need to evaluate these educational proposals based on one simple yardstick: will this help a child learn? and if the answer is yes, we should be for it. if the answer is no, we should be against it. so what will it take to change the dynamic? well, you know, there are a couple of things here. the solutions lie in, of course, accountability and quality teachers and autonomy. but, you know, one of the solutions also is parent choice. you know, i see as i go around the country that the more participants step up -
with a philadelphia investment accounting firm, cook and dealer was bought by a boston financial firm, united asset management which ed eventually ran. from there he became chairman and ceo of delaware investments, a mutual management co. and next he was called in to run putnam investments in boston, even larger mutual-fund management firm that has experienced regulatory failings by the previous management. he righted that ship and eventually sold a good price for shareholders to large canadian financial firm. it was at that time we approach ed to run freddie. freddie and fanny, together with broader issues of u.s. government in housing finance is one of the major unfinished pieces of business in financial regulatory reform. is clearly an important issue. we have c-span here tonight filming this. ed has a unique perspective, the perspective of an experienced manager on the frontline and a most thoughtful public policy participant. this evening he is going to talk about where the g s es have been and what to do with them. my great pleasure to introduce ed haldeman.

is in chicago, and mitt romney in boston. we'll focus on the more competitive senate seats and taking reaction throughout the night by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter with live coverage beginning at eight eastern on c-span c-span radio, and c-span.org. >> when i watch c-span, i like the morning journal, the give and take there, the balanced approach, and i also like to hear the callers. never called myself, but i like hearing the callers. some of them are unusual to say the least, others thought provoking. c-span is everywhere. in washington, every event, you know, small hearings, public policy meeting downtown, c-span just seems to be there. >> steve austin watching c-span on verizon. c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979 brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >>> up next, former presidential candidate ralph nader on his book "17 solutions: bold ideas for america's future" looking at the political and cosh -- landscape and issues facing the country. the independent candidate for president in 2004 and 2008 discusses tax reform, the reduction of the
has enough money to hire a new assistant and he hires a promising young man from boston and he teaches them how to be a journalist and report about slavery and the great irony they would want to die in obscurity and he would go on to become the most famous abolitionist editor and one of the most influential american journalists of the 19th book, too. you probably think the only important thing that he did in his life is write the lyrics to the star spangled banner. he went into an interesting career in politics which is completely unknown to most people she was the modern washington character after he became famous in 1814 for writing the star spangled banner he did what people in washington usually do and he parlayed his fame into a lucrative practice and the political connection into jobs in the of the culmination of francis scott key's in 1833 when he was appointed to be the district attorney for the city of washington. what he did in that time i wouldn't say that was as significant as right in the star spangled banner which was obviously an enduring bet but it was really important.
staff certainly said one thing but in boston at the romney headquarters my god was sensing a lot of confidence coming out of that building. unlike mr. romney and did have a concession speech prepared for this event as we thought through what the conversation would be like depending on the scenario but i had a few questions on election night. the first was remembering exactly what it felt like in 2004, where we had a dozen constitutional amendments passed all across the country. you had karl rove celebrated as the architect hewitt just built a new kind of republican electoral majority that would have legs in traction for a decade or two. you had a president who was reelected, not because of that within the toolkit was the use of the wedge issue, gay, gays and lgbt couples across the country. the dark and sort of fetal position and what i sensed on election night this year is how proud i am about our resilience. we picked ourselves up and we decided to fight and decided to start talking to republicans. we decided to demand more from our great democratic front. a lot of movements co
of massachusetts and made more u-turns in a boston cabdriver in trying to to get to where he was. when you look at the results of this election you can draw a direct connection between the policies president obama has led on and the voting support he got. if on the face of this republicans decide what they really need to do is to go back and do it even more conservative again, far be it from me to persuade them otherwise. we have another election four years, but it would not be wise. >> on the religion question, i agree with blaise and ann but i would add one thing. if you look at the polling of people who said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate because they were a mormon, the majority of those people thought barack obama is a muslim who was born in kenya. so it's the demographic. it wasn't there to make it a negative but it is true that democrats make it an issue. >> some of the positions romney took during the primaries really hurt specifically with regard to immigration reform. i think newt gingrich said that romney was the most conservative on that issue and in a country wher
in boston, it's anyone's choice, but it is that event in some ways that we go back to. now, james baldwin, i had great time writing this book, but i just wrote about the writers that just wanted to write about it, quoting them, end graphs, just using them for years until i finally decided i'm going to write about them and see what shape the book takes. baldwin, to me, is the most revealing. i'd always basically just quoted him, plucked passages as we all do. baldwin the essayist. baldwin, the nonfiction voice of the civil rights movement is something everyone should go back to revisit. in the collection, nobody knows my name, or in the collection, previous non-fiction collections or most famously, baldwin made himself the voice that was constantly, constantly asking why can't americans remember slavery? why don't they want to face their history with racism, why don't they want to look back at the emancipation process, why won't they look back at reconstruction? why won't they? he does it in the interview with baldwin, in the quick silver, you know, quick fire, quick method in appealing an un
was founded in coastal town in was on the fbi's most wanted list and responsible for the murders in boston. there is no evidence to suggest that and it's hard to prove that we have the compound that has been translated if there was a smoking gun. if it was a smoking gun proving the relations are not so good that we wouldn't have pointed out. is it the difference it and the diplomats and journalists similar than they know. there is no evidence that i have seen that there was high level complicity or knowledge about him being. this led to the problem this was for the pakistani military and intelligence and a different question that we are talking about. there is to my knowledge no evidence that they do that he was there at that time. >> in 2003 on the two locations al qaeda was at war with the pakistani state and that pakistan the state has been quite helpful and the operational commander of 9/11. they are held on al qaeda when it comes to the taliban as a separate story. i won't let you off the hook. the new america foundation if you're interested in drones to keep track of the drone strike
officials in boston who had this quote that said women politicians speak softly and carry a big statistic, and i don't think they speak softly anymore, but there is ad moo -- a model of women who came through the ranks against all odds focusing on accountability. running for county attorney, i looked at the records of napolitano because on the website they showed what the goals were and what they got done. you see that in the women and actually some of the male senators as well that made it through the election. while the balance of power stayed the same in washington, there was definitely a rejection of people who had rigid ideologies. people wanted to see things get done and compromise. they didn't want to see people swinging at each other from the opposite corner of the boxes ring. >> there's sometimes generalizations made about how women manage things, seen in business as well as politics, women are consensual, cooperate, more risk averse that has men. is that your experience in politics? do you think it matters to the pop -- population in general? there's men in the add -- audience,
on this gragraduate degree, he is workig at a domestic violence shelter in boston. harvard awarded him the thomas upton scholarship. pierre recently wrote an article about growing up as undocumented immigrant and here what is he said. "i am not a criminal, a monito , a predator, or swung had sits at someone doing nothing meaningful. i care for this country, as well as its sorrows and joys. i am not asking that our government maintain an open-door policy for immigrants. i am simply asking that it give an opportunity to those of us who have proven ourselves." well, pierre is right. america needs young people just like him who love their country and are dedicated to caring for our society's most vulnerable. so what do the american people think about the idea of the dream act? a bloomberg poll found that 64% of likely voters, almost two out of three, including 66% of independents support the policy compared to only 30% who oppose it. by a margin of 2-1 the american people know this is the right thing to do. now we need to pass a comprehensive immigration reform. on our side the negotiating effort wil

officials allow back in boston who had this quote, not exactly accurate but she said that women politicians speak softly and carry a big statistic. i don't really think they speak softly anymore, but there is a model of women who have had to come through the ranks against all odds with a focus more on accountability. when i was running for county attorney i would look at the records of janet napolitano as governor of arizona, kathleen sebelius in kansas because on their website, they showed what their goals were and what they got done. and i think you see that in some of the women come and actually some of the male senators as well that made it to this election but while the balance of power stay the same in washington, there was definitely a rejection of people have a rigid ideology. people want to see things get done and copper much. they did want to see people swinging at each other from opposite corners of the boxing ring. >> the sometimes generations about how women to manage things everything in businesses it women tend to be more consensual. we all are good at co-oping. is that your
e-mails, i am disappointed -- when i went to work for the mayor of boston i was told seriously there's one thing you got to remember. you have -- never talk when you can not and never not when you can wind. why these two intelligent men rescinding these embarrassing e-mails is baffling. did they not know, talk about white collar crime, that no one would be indicted if it would not for e-mails. i am sorry for the general david petraeus family. there does not appear to be any public policy relevance to this. i am sorry people are fussing over it. >> it is a major public policy f they cause -- do you think the democrats have a mandate to get that type of revenue through? when you look at this election -- >> and doing one part of the george bush tax cuts which were adopted after a president got a plurality of half a million votes. if-half a million give you a mandate to put the tax cuts in than 3.3 million plus ought to give you a mandate to put them out. >> how much of the president's vote the you think was about taxes and the argument that he made about higher taxes versus all of his o

to boston had their service interrupted. dozens and dozens of new jersey transit locomotives and rail cars were damaged by flooding. and so today i'm proud to announce that we expedited $25 million in transportation funding to help ease that situation. but some commuters into new york, for example, from my home state of new jersey are still suffering four-hour commutes with rail service only about half of what it normally is, largely because there's still not enough power for all the trains. in the meantime, new jersey has added subsidized ferry service to make up the difference with the department of transportation providing over 300 -- the federal department of transportation providing over 300 buses to help serve those new ferry lines, including one out of liberty state park. here's another photograph of the extraordinary power that sandy's surge lifted boats on to the rail bridge along the north jersey coastline. amazingly, through the hard work of new jersey transit workers, this devastated rail line might be able to resume limited service by the end of this week. but this line, like
